Looking for advice on contacting St Vincent De Paul with regard to seeking help. I am on OAP of €230 pw, my wife receives €196 illness benefit, but after paying our mortgage & bills, at the end of the week there is €23 euro left - so nothing left for food. I have never had to ask for charity & a bit nervous about doing this, but really dont know where to turn now. Ive contacted my creditors who have all reduced our outgoings, so I cant pull extra money from anywhere. As Ive stated the bills are paid, but fridge & cuboards are empty. My questions are: 1 Do SVDP help people like us? 2 How do you go about contacting them? 3 Would it be someone local calling to the house? 4 If it is someone local, is it confidential? Any help & advice is much appreciated thank you..
